Chandigarh 27th June:- Continuing the legacy of promoting art and culture Pracheen Kala Kendra, in collaboration with Chandigarh Administration, is organizing an extremely innovative Musical Concert titled "Smelting Contours" on Saturday June 27, 2015 at 7:00p.m onwards at Tagore Theater Chandigarh which will feature legendary artists of our country namely Ranjit Barot and Pt. Sandeep Mahavir from Mumbai. This concert will be unique and first of its time as it will showcase the intricacies of two art styles i.e. Indian Classical, Kathak Dance and Western Jazz Druming . The title "Smelting Contours" meaning melting of boundaries is truly apt because this concert will feature the blending of different flavors of art i.e. Kathak Dance and Jazz Druming. It will showcase the whirlpool of Classical rhythms through interplay of twists and turns of Kathak by Pt. Sandeep Mahavir and magnificent tempos and time signatures of Drums by Ranjit Barot .  These two artists are world renowned in their respective fields.

 As we are all aware that whenever two cultures live, grow and developed together, they influence each other in some way or the other.  Due to decades of association and exposure to west, the western arts have become very much part and parcel of our culture, So Pracheen Kala Kendra has decided to organise this type of concert yearly to cater our Classical art to the younger generations which is fascinated and attracted to western arts. Concerts like "Smelting Contours" will arouse interest of youngsters in our Classical art and culture and give them an example that how our classical arts can be fused with the western arts.
